with his MONEY IN HAND.
ME: "Andy, I really like that clock you bought, and I bet I could sell it at the flea market, can I buy it off of you and get you another clock that only takes batteries?"
ANDY: "But I like this clock, it has numbers I can read."
ME: "Yes, but if you had a clock with a battery then you could put it wherever you wanted, and I'll find you one that has numbers you can read."
ANDY: PAUSE "Ok, but I'll have to think about how much I want to sell it for."
ME: Mouth drops open.
ANDY: "I'll sell it to you for $20."
ME: I birthed this child and he's trying to make a profit off of me?? "Well, I was thinking that I could just pay you what you paid for it and we'd call it good."
ANDY: "Well, I'll come down to $19."
Just another lesson in how our children watch and listen to EVERYTHING we say, even when we don't think they do!
By the way, I have him chewed down to $7.00.
By the way again, he plugged it in in his room to see if it works, and you know what, it's actually kind of cute. Ahhh, my picker son.
Disclaimer: This post was meant in no way to offend anyone who loves orange, teapot, 1950's clocks that plug in.
